- We noted before that John Laurinaitis was on WWE's recent tour of Japan. Laurinaitis, who is one of the more experienced WWE agents when it comes to Japan, actually ran the tour by himself.

Dean Malenko would have been the other agent for the tour but he was not brought in. Paul Heyman was brought in as a performer on the tour but he did help Laurinaitis put some of the matches together.

- There's been a former UFC star training at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando but his name is being kept secret for political reason. It's said he has most of the characteristics WWE likes but age wouldn't be in his favor.
